[1/24/2017] New championship flag for Summer Koshien

The Summer Koshien championship flag has been replaced one time in 1958. The Japan High School Baseball Federation announced on January 24 that there are plans to order a new flag in time to celebrate the tournament’s 100th anniversary next year. The weaving will most likely begin some time in June and end in April next year. Championship flags for regional tournaments will also be replaced. The new flag will cost about twelve million yen.

Additional players, most likely pitchers, will be selected from other teams to fill the gaps in the roster.
